Shipped to Japan ?
Is the boat in pic the one you were going to buy? Looks good! It's tough to tell until it's on the water.
I have a 29' Mach 1 Endeavor a similar situation where the builder is no longer around. The boat is rock solid and is built like a tank runs close to 70.
It's being redone right now by STS High Performance and I wouldn't trade it for a new boat of similar style.
I looked last fall and found most to have bad glass and poor workmanship I would be pis*ing my money away.
Over the next few years I will invest in a larger boat 40ish feet but will not buy new... I will get a boat that been worked on from a member here at OSO... You know what your getting.
All the usual suspects : CIG - BAJA - FOUNTAIN - Formula - Etc... are consistent and hold value but you have the same boat as every other person on the water... If you want to make yours better you need to spend a ton of cash...
Sorry to get on my SOAP BOX ...
Sometimes it's not all bad to own a no name boat....
Good Luck finding yours.
